Redmondite talks of life in the 1870's: RHS open meeting

History is happening in the Redmond area and we welcome you to our meeting. The Redmond Historical Society will meet on Saturday, March 9, 2013, 10:30 a.m. to noon, at The Old Redmond Schoolhouse Community Center, 16600 NE 80 Street, Redmond, WA. 

Andy Weiss will share memories of his European immigrant family which came to Salmonberg (Redmond) in about 1872. He will bring to life what it was like living here at that time, the local culture, no electricity or running water, working in the woods, when the timber companies and railroads were king. Don’t miss this meeting.
